Health Tip: Avoiding Processed Foods
(HealthDay News) -- Processed foods often contain lots of fat, salt and other preservatives that make them considerably less healthy.
To avoid processed foods, the American Heart Association suggests:
Cook your own meals, instead of eating ready-made meals.
Skip bottled salad dressings, and create a dressing yourself.
Instead of flavored yogurt, buy plain yogurt and add fruit.
Grow your own fruit and vegetables.
Choose less processed snacks, such as cut crunchy vegetables, popcorn, nuts or seeds.
